What We Do

FTCC is a niche independent management consultancy providing Consultancy and advisory services, training and professional support to organisations.

At FTCC, we help organisations through a collaborative partnership in identifying issues and problems and providing effective solutions and guided advice in addressing the same.

We focus on the following areas.

Mergers & Acquisitions

We are experienced in all aspects of the M&A process, in both equity and asset transactions. We support early transaction involvement by proving structuring advice leading into strategy conceptualisation and continuing into due diligence and negotiation support and closure thereafter.  We bring with us our extensive experience in supporting and advising at every stage of the evolution of the M&A transaction.

We are most experienced in the areas of sale or purchase of equity and assets in both the upstream and downstream oil and gas industry, marine assets and vessels, power generation, gaming and telecommunications.

Oil & Gas

We have extensive experience in advising the various segments of the oil & gas value chain from the exploration, development and production phases of the upstream sector and on to the downstream and maintenance segment of the industry.

We focus on advising the legal & contractual, licensing, risk management & insurance and supply chain management aspects of the segments above.

Legal & Compliance

We have a strong background and extensive experience in advising the legal and compliance requirements of organisations over a broad spread of industries.

We are particularly adept at helping our clients conceptualise structures and solutions that are legally robust while remaining commercially astute.

Our compliance consulting solutions focuses strongly on enhancing the business of the organisation by adding value in the compliance process to facilitate and protect the business of the enterprise.


Corporate Governance

With many years of experience in advising on the best practices of corporate governance for public listed companies, we are equipped to advise Boards of Directors and senior management on the latest recommendations and the implementation of the best aspects of corporate governance.

We differentiate ourselves by formulating recommendations of corporate governance practices into a tailor made solution with the key and clear objective in ensuring that corporate governance enhances rather than impedes the business and operations of the organisation.


Effective communications adds immeasurable value to an organisation. From a business utility to shareholder engagement and even extending to regulatory dialogue and dispute scenarios, the benefits of communication cannot be overstated.

With a strong command of communications coupled with years of experience on the strategic use of  the same, FTCC is well positioned to offer effective, timely and result oriented communications, whether strategic, operational or in disputes.



With the wide ranging experience garnered at FTCC, we encapsulate such know-hows into learning modules which we offer to organisations. We offer both a short form half day training module as well as tailored training needs over a longer duration.

We are proficient in offering training modules to Boards of Directors as well as to mid and senior management of organisations.
